Re: Let's talk childhood obesity....

We also have to be a little bit careful about the categories of 'overweight' and 'obese' in relation to the BMI scale. The BMI doesn't take into account muscle as a separate weight, so people who are insanely healthy but work out and have a lot of muscles can be considered obese by the BMI scale. Also, not everyone who is overweight is unhealthy :]
